I was thinking of doing the same thing. I don't think there is a separate fuse for the headlight washers, it seems that they are on the same fuse as the wipers.

Best option I have found is to just turn off the headlights when you want to spray your windscreen, but even that can be a pain.

I don't believe they run on a standalone fuse.

I coded mine out ages ago, and have had no issues with it.

Oh I thought they were on a stand alone fuse
All good suggestions but coding sounds like the cleanest solution

Because xenons are stupidly bright. Dust particles on the headlight cover will scatter the steel beam melting rays of glorious light into unsuspecting motherfuckers blinding the shit out of everyone and cause WW3. We need headlight washers so that does not happen. Pls obey rools

I might code them out too

What's the definite way to get the headlight washers working? i'm sure I have them on my E90 LCI with factory xenons. But I've never actually seen them working

Do they come on every time I use the windscreen washer? Or only when the lights are on? And do the lights need to be on 'auto'? etc?

cheers

There's a cool off period, think you need to wait another 5 or so washes after the first activation before it'll spray the headlights again.
